Its a Month today

It was exactly 4 weeks, on Monday, when I had walked in David Jones with my skin in disaster. It was dry,stretchy, cracking and red bumps which felt hot. My skin was not in happy condition for few days and the stay over at friends place pushed it over the brink. I was so desperate and frustrated with my skin that I was ready to go any length to fix it.

And, with determined stride in my steps , I walked and stopped at Dermalogica counter. Now, the reason why I stopped there was cause my friend who has severe acne with dry skin( and yes that possible !!) uses Dermalogica.I thought, if it works for her then it should work for me as well.

As the beauty therapist was busy with some other client , I waited ( mind it this was on a lunch break, which highlights how desperate I was). Once she came over, she quickly analyzed my skin, did a face mapping and said "You have dry,dehydrated sensitive skin". She showed me the following products and did a quick application as well.

-> Ultra Calming Cleanser

-> Ultra Calming Mist

-> Gentle Soothing Booster

-> Ultra Sensitive Face Block spf 25

It felt better with first application and I could see that the redness had diminished.As a result, I bought them ( they broke my makeup budget for the month!!!)

Also the therapist had suggested to buy Skin Hydrating Booster later, which I picked this weekend. Quite happy till now

But, boy oh boy, they really work....I mean they are gems....
My skin has never felt better.All red bumps are gone, dryness is controlled and I feel confident without makeup!!! In fact Mr.M commented "Your skin is glowing. I think it was money well spent".
And my little sister said "Oh, you have got skin just like me"

I do the following
-> Clean the face
-> Spray Ultra Calming Mist
-> Apply the Gentle Soothing Booster
-> Apply any face block (AM)
-> Apply any moisturizer (PM)

As if all the compliments were not proof enough, a little story over the weekend sealed my love for Dermalogica. My facial skin can't stand oil.Period. I had applied hand cream which had olive oil and while sleeping had rested my face on my hands.Boom!! I wake up in morning with five red bumps on cheek. I was like 'Yikes!!'.
But,then I followed my usual routine with Dermalogica products and woke up with nice baby soft skin..all bumps gone.

I wanted to share this with you guys earlier, but I thought to complete 4 weeks before I talked about it.

For past few days I am been thinking "Why didn't I start using Dermalogica earlier"

Is there any products which makes you think the same ???


  1. So cool ya. I am waiting for them to launch in Mumbai so I can try them out too! :D

  2. I'm going to try the Ultra Calming Mist you suggested. I'm currently using the Oil Control Lotion and Oil-Free sunblock (I have oily skin, so can't use anything rich), and they work fine for me.

  3. Sounds wonderful. I need to explore their range.

  4. @Tanveer, @Poohkie : Its a great range....I would say explore it, get some samples before buying the actual product.

  5. @Tine : I love it...The therapist at David Jones counter is really good.The mist was the first thing she suggested me.

  6. I also think that they make great products, if a tad on the exxy side.
    I'm loving the special cleansing gel though for daily facial washes. I bought 2 massive salon size bottles that will probably last me years haha.

  7. I know...but I think skincare is always a good investment...I have been using the cleanser for almost 6 weeks and I have gone through only 1/8th of it....
